From idea to transfer

Digitisation/Industrie 4.0

Technologies

The state-of-the-art machines and software systems at STFI are utilised for the exemplary presentation of use cases and for research into digital processes in textile production. Two research and test fields for the production of technical textiles have been set up for this purpose and are being continuously developed. The focus is on the topics of "networked production" and "self-controlling nonwoven production".

Many prototypical, industry-specific demonstrators have been created already within the framework of the research work of STFI and on the basis of the exchange with textile companies and technology providers. Interested companies are invited to visit the "Textile Factory of the Future" to test existing technologies and demonstrators or to develop them further together with the STFI.

KIMONO – Customised modelling of neurodermatitis textiles

Project KIMONO deals with the topic of how neurodermatitis textiles can be individually modelled and configured. The aim is to develop a tool with which neurodermatitis clothing can be customised and made up. In addition to neurodermatitis-active additives, new material combinations will also be included in this development, so that even innovative textile surfaces can be expected as potential preliminary products.

TOPAS – Physiologically optimised protective masks for everyday use

Respiratory masks are a hindrance when breathing and speaking, they fog up the glasses, slip and usually do not make the best impression visually either. In the TOPAS project, an alliance of science and industry has made a contribution to optimising the protective effect and wearing comfort as well as the general acceptance of respiratory masks suitable for everyday use for all age groups.

VirtualTextileLearning – Learning and assistance systems in the learning process

The aim of the VirtualTextileLearning project is to use the potential of digital technologies to integrate learning into the work process in order to enable self-determined and user-adaptive lifelong learning. In the process, learning location-specific solutions were developed that contribute to the recruitment of skilled workers, support the securing of skilled workers and promote qualification. The implementation project creates synergies between the learning locations of the company, the school and the research and experimental field. New technological impulses are set at all learning locations, for example through the use of data glasses.

Project duration: 06/2019–05/2022
